I launched my blog 2 years ago without knowing exactly how I would start monetizing. In fact I made $0 in my first six months.
I don’t know where I got this idea that I would be making all this money after I launched my blog. Now looking back on my early blogging days, there were a few HUGE problems that were standing in the way of me turning my blog into a biz:
- I didn’t have a strategy
- I didn’t have an offer
- I didn’t have a system
However, the one thing I did have was an email list and an opt-in. I knew I needed a list because I know you guys have heard the saying “the money is in the list,” and blah blah blah….but my monetization strategy was a little shaky. So the list wasn’t bringing in anything.
I’ve always been a fan of investing in mentors, coaches, courses, etc. I LOVE taking courses. I had a call with a mentor/biz coach and I told her about my problem and she flat out told me “Honey, you need to be making money in your business.”
After our call, I set up and launched my website service based on a new skill I learned. I became my own case study for setting up WordPress websites and email marketing campaigns.
